Caspian Tern, Green Heron - Saratoga Lake

Alan Mapes

On a paddle from Waterfront Park on the north end of the lake, I had 11 Caspian terns mid-day today - one fishing near the mouth of the Kayadeross Creek and 10 on a private beach where the ring-billed gulls hang out (Water’s Edge). 

My first of year green heron flew out near the creek mouth. 16 buffleheads were also near that spot.
